Elegant Christmas- Gold tree in the bedroom

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....
and today I am sharing all about an incredible gilded tree in the bedroom.

Sometimes you find a tree that speaks your language.
And sometimes you find several.
The Frosted Fraser Fir is one of them.
I cannot get enough of their snow sprinkled branches. 
And the Alpine Balsam with that dainty Charlie Brown style charm makes me smile.
And I was pretty sure I wasn't going to order another large tree this year...
and then I saw something sprinkled with a Midas Touch.

Something that glistened.
And glimmered.
And glowed like no other.

A Champagne tree sprinkled with a bit of pixie dust.

Truth be told... I have wanted a gold tree for years. 
But not a tinsel gold... one that was regal. Vintage inspired. And oh so elegant.
And so when I saw that Balsam Hill had a champagne tree in this years line up-
well, I knew it would be spectacular.

I anxiously awaited for it to arrive.
And when it did- it did not disappoint.

I almost left it bare- just twinkling away.
But I had a vision.

I added simple white ornaments in glossy and matte finishes

just a few blush baubles
 a few opaque whites
gilded wire ornaments.

Not too much- but just enough.

And called it good.

Lots of questions about those charming paper boxes too- they are actually the boxes that the white ornaments came in. They are a corrugated brown paper and so sweet 
that I used them as gift boxes as well.

And stay tuned for the rest of the bedroom dressed for Christmas coming your way
and don't miss any of the other bloggers sharing their trees today for
